A little about me . . . Welcome to my blog. I try to take time and enjoy the many wonders and beauty of life and nature. Every free moment I have I devote to making jewelry. I plan to show case my designs here and use this a forum to say whatever I want, how I feel, the random thoughts that pop into my head :), and as my journal to chronicle my journey through this life. Sometimes raunchy, often irreverent, but always entertaining!

Does the ring really not mean a thing?
A few weeks ago I had lunch with a dear friend.The last time we had emailed each other she dropped hints about her upcoming engagement. So of course when I saw her I asked if her boyfriend had popped the question. She said “yes” and I was beaming with excitement for her. I casually glanced at her finger and noticed there was no ring. Thinking nothing of it, I asked if her ring was at the jewelers being sized.
She said no. There wasn’t going to be an engagement ring since she didn’t need a big rock on her finger to prove her fiancé loved her.
Wow, I thought-what a refreshing approach.Then I began to wonder if this was common. Do women in this society really no longer require the diamond (or equally expensive stone)?
